KEYS TO VICTORY
Both teams claimed wins in last weekend's Baltimore vs. Washington, D.C., Challenge at Lake Clifton — Poly dominating Ballou, 69-28, and Wilson getting past No. 13 Dunbar, 67-65. The Engineers lean on standout Crosby, who does everything well with an ability to score the ball and dish to teammates. A strong supporting cast surrounds him led by Feldman, Thompson and Darius Kelly. Crosby enables the Engineers to control the tempo of a game, and that will be a big factor against talented Wilson. The Tigers also have a strong and experienced backcourt in Holmes and Long with Gillette, a transfer from Paul VI, a key addition up front.
